CHANDIGARH: Union Home Minister Amit Shah on Sunday inaugurated several projects, including the state-of-the-art Integrated Command and Control Centre (ICCC), in the joint capital of Punjab and Haryana.

Accompanying Punjab Governor Banwarlilal Purohit, Shah also laid foundation stones of a hostel block of commerce college, a project for constructing 240 houses for police personnel and a bus depot-cum-workshop.

As per the ICCC project, more than 2, 000 CCTV cameras have been installed in the city to keep an eye on traffic violations.

The ICCC is also integrated with major citizen-specific services, including water, electricity, sewage, solid waste management, transport, e-mail governance, parking and public-bike sharing for an effective monitoring of services and data analysis.

It is expected that after the inauguration of the centre, issuing challan to vehicles through these hi-tech cameras will start shortly.

The other projects which the Union Minister inaugurated included a new office building of Chandigarh Housing Board, two government schools and an urban park.

Later, addressing a gathering, Shah said he was visiting the 'beautiful city' after a long time and felt very good.

"In the history of the modern world, Chandigarh is the most developed city in the category of planned cities, " said Shah.
